grey line on my optoma data projector

By jim ·
I have a really irritating fault on my optoma ep729 data projector. Seemingly randomly a grey vertical flickering vertical line appears running the full height of the screen about 1/5 of the way across the screen. The line is about 1cm wide.

After it has appeared, it remains even after disconnecting from the Dell 9300 laptop.

Sometimes it occurs after about 5 mins, on other occasions the projector can operate for 8 hours straight without a problem.

Sounds like a Hardware problem

If the projector is still UG return it to the supplier for repair/replacement. If it's no longer UG you'll need to get it looked at to fix the problem.

Well Jim, you are not alone. I just bought an Optoma projector and have the same problem on mine. At first it only happened occasionally, but now it's all the time. Any solutions?

Did anyone sort out this problem or do I have to send our brand new projector straight back?

After all if it's got a problem now it's the best time to get it sorted rather than after the Warranty has expired and you have to pay for it.

I would suggest returning it to the place of purchase and demanding an exchange unit to replace the faulty one that you have.

We should all write Optoma and get them to fix this problem for free.
